We stayed at the Koa Kea on our second leg of our honeymoon for 7 nights. The hotel is well maintained and up to date. I loved the resort because it is truly a 5 star hotel without the "big resort" feel. It was very quiet and relaxing with very few children, which is what we were looking for. Now for the details..
Location - It was our first time in Hawaii and glad we chose Kauai. The hotel is located in Poipu very close to many restaurants and even a couple golf courses. There is a lot of shopping in the area as well.
Hotel Property - It is located directly on the beach. The beach was beautiful. We rented body boards and snorkeled directly in the area around the hotel. Also, a short walk to the left, will take you to Poipu Beach. It is a public beach, but quite fun with great snorkeling. The pool was great too. Very clean and refreshing. It is located by the pool bar which has pretty good lunch and great drinks. Beware the drinks are pricey though. The hotel also has a grassy area in front of the beach with chase lounges to lay out and enjoy the beach. The best part was it was never hard to grab a lounge chair or a seat at the pool anytime of the day.
The restaurant (Red Salt) - Best food on the island, easy! Make sure you get the package that includes breakfast. Every item on the menu was 5 star. Dinner was awesome too. Also has a nice bar to grab a few drinks before or after dinner. It also serves sushi in the lounge around the bar.
Spa - Very good. We received a couples massage that was very nice.
The Staff - Truly the best part! They made everything worth while. Very friendly and helpful. They will help you with any excursions you want to do and with directions.
Would definitley recommend this hotel!
